After looking over the extensive wine menu, we finally settled on the 2009 Rainoldi Rosso di Valtellina, a smooth, fruity Italian wine (that was at a good price point to boot).
First to arrive was the Two Celery Bisque with aged soy hazelnuts and a perigrod truffled vinaigrette - it was too intriguing not to order. With its creamy depth of flavor with the occasional crunch from the hazelnuts, this was an amazing soup to entice us for the meal to come.

After the pastas, it was time to move on to the fish course, specifically the Rhode Island Fluke, Green Cabbage, Romanesco Cauliflower, Mutsu Apple, Pickled Cranberries and Sage Froth. Fluke (also known as summer flounder) is a mild while fish that was cooked with an amazing golden crispy top crust. The side of the Mutsu apple was strong and flavorful next to the mild fish. The sage and the tangy cranberries offset everything nicely.

If you haven't been already, I would highly recommend a trip to Bondir. If you have already been, I would still recommend making a reservation. With an ever changing menu of local ingredients there is always something new to try.
